“great place”
Reviewed 31 July 2009

We were traveling with family and 2 grandchildren, 2 and 6 yrs old. Staff and management were very friendly. Rooms were very comfortable and spacey. Pool side is very pretty with beautiful flowers around it. For families with small children, there IS a kiddy pool. We could look out our window and see the mountains back toward Maggie Valley. This is a great motel for relaxing and close to shops. In fact instead of staying just 2 nights, we ended up staying 3 nights. If u are looking for a big fancy motel, this isn't it. For us, this is a great place to stay, relax and we will return again. IF u are into casinos, u can walk or drive from the parking lot to casino next door.

We were very impressed with the staff and room at this hotel. The rooms are huge and very clean. We were checked in very quickly and the manager was very nice and gave us some very good advice on the surrounding areas. We will definitely stay again the next time we are in the area. It is an older hotel but it has been well-maintained. Everything is close by and much easier to get to than the other hotels we have stayed at in the area. The price was much better, of course we just blew our savings at the casino, but we had a really good time.

Kudos to Scott and his wife Christina at El Camino Motel! Having had a pretty bad motorcycle accident during our stay there, they were genuinely concerned for our well-being and very comforting to our daughters who came from Maryland and drove us back home. While our room was very clean and comfortable, the personal attention we received was key, and will never be forgotten! Our heartfelt thanks for such kindness! God Bless them.

We were quite satisfied with our stay at the El Camino. The room was quite large and priced great. There was five of us in one room and we
didn't kill one another; enough said. The managers were very friendly
and helpful and the little house keeper really took good care of us with extra towels and so on. I do have to say the bed I slept in was harder than I would have liked, but other than that it was all good. I would return in a second.

  • Liked — The size of the room and the pool area
  • Disliked — The comfort of the bed

We have stayed at the El Camino several times and have always enjoyed our stay. It's within walking distance to the casino and the staff are friendly and always accomodating. It's a little dated, not a full service hotel, but if that's not important to you then this is the place to stay!
